Does anyone know if they go after these guys like they do hackers? It
is cheating, after all. I’ve been teamed on the last 3 FFA’s I’ve played so
I was wondering if any of you know if Blizz would do anything about this.

U ytkownik “Erik Muna aka PetFish”
this is a part of game, you have to play smart or have lot of luck
btw I never team with anyone, I try to put sentry wards everywhere and
attack when 2 other players are fighting 🙂

and when someone says to all that you have too much exps and going to win,
you say sth like, “o** he is f****** liar, he just killed my whole army”, or
if some ud goes frost wyrms, gargs, destroeyrs (I find it very difficult to
counter even with bats) I say “
going mass air, we are going to loose” 🙂 and from time to time you can say
“o** I sux I just lose hero to creeps” :))

I team all the time. Easiest to do it is to play lv1 games, there you can
easily get into same random FFA game with your mate. Since you both are
experienless, you end up in the same game that is starting (about 15% of the
time you end up in different games, then just drop and retry 🙂
Second game has only 1/5 chance to get into the same game and after that
we’ve never manageed to get into the same game, so we harass lv1 games
mostly. I’m still lv2 with my “main account” in warcraft because I play it
only to ruin it for everyone else. Fun. 🙂
Oh, interesting fact: about 1/3 of the time there is another teaming posse
in the FFA, so quite often it’s 2v2 with one extra player in the mix. In
higher level teaming is propably random alliances and integral part of the
game. I don’t think you’re still playing lv1-2 matches are you?

If people are teaming up type in BIG CAPITAL LETTERS: “O**

btw look at my ffa replay (http://www.wc3addicts.com/download.php?rid=6548)
it was really funny, I said to guy who was attacking me first “you attack
first you die first” and after few minutes I catched him going back to base
from big battle 🙂

Thanks for the replies, people, you just never know if you’re going to
be teamed. Some jackasses trash talk the whole time and say stuff like
“blue has this and that” or “green is not in his base” or “yellow has all
air” etc. They may be lies or they may be the truth so I just try and
filter that stuff out and play my game as best I can. It’s the FFA teaming
up that p***** me off… if you want to play as a team then play 2v2 but to
think you’re the s*** because you can 2v1v1 people then you are sorely
lacking in self confidence and that is sad.

isn’t this teaming up?
Robert lax 2012-05-03 02:41:22
good point…except they did it first!

Retaliatory justification for something initially deemed wrong. sounds like
a good argument base for me

C’mon. Teaming is PART of FFA! There’s a huge psychological component
to playing FFA games where you have to be strong, but not appear to be
strong. Have an army of chims/hippos and all the expansions? You lose.
You’re too strong, or rather, you appear to be too strong, and the
other players, who are guaranteed a loss if they don’t team you, will
gang up and take you out of the equation.
But, how about if you have your army and aren’t flaunting it in
everybody’s face, you’ve cleared the red dots on the map and levelled
your heros and have good items, you’ve upgraded your army, and you’ve
scouted all the expansions, THEN you’re in a good position for FFA.
Does your shade/owl/arcanetower/sentryward spy two of your enemies
fighting? Jump in the middle and clean up both armies, or better yet,
take out one of their bases, or just snipe a few heroes for the exp.
Spot your enemy creeping, run in with your blademaster and take the lvl
10 item that just dropped and hack him with it and run away. Notice
somebody who doesn’t have much of an army due to overzealous creeping?
Run into his base and hack his town hall down and TP out.
Basically, FFA isn’t AT or RT, it’s a totally different game, and played
with a different mentality. FFA games can take an hour or more. You
could kill all but one person on the map and still lose. It’s a very
delicate balance between aggression and restraint, and one of the most
important things is scout scout scout! Information is key in FFA. If
you’re getting teamed, chances are that you’re getting teamed because
you were scouted, revealed to have what appeared to be a dominating army
or something like it, and those who would lose to you chose to eliminate
you from the equation.
So I guess my answer (note: *my* answer, maybe not yours) to the subject
heading is: No, Blizzard does not do anything about FFA teamers, as they
view it as part of the inherent dynamics of an FFA game.

FFA is like survivor at the TV.. It’s not always the best that wins… Look
at Rupert, he’s the best surviror I ever saw, and he’s gone…

Teaming is part of FFA. If you are getting screwed it is extremely common
and seems to happen to me about half of the games. When you see it happen,
switch your chat to talk to one of the remaining neutral guys and team with
FFA is Brutal but so fun when your heros are leveled up. I think there are
more maphackers in FFA than most games or at least it shows more in my
replays. I will see guys tp to their bases to anticipate my attack even when
they cant have known it. Perhaps their “teammate” told them…not sure. Just
I also have to agree with what some other guy said about sneaking around
with blademaser and windwalk. He can stir up major s*** in FFA.
